Which is the best story this weekend:Kerry camp swears he won't apologize

Which is the best story this weekend that proves the Bush Media is fun:

http://news.bostonherald.com/national/national.bg?artic...

"Kerry camp swears he won't apologize." by the Boston Herald's David Guarino is cute, but does it beat out

the Wall Street Journal ed board that says that paying unemployment benefits provides a disincentive to take the jobs that will be created by the recovering economy, keeping the jobless rate artificially high?...or due either beat out

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A43967-20...

the Alan Cooperman story about H. James Towey, director of the White House's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, suggesting that pagans don't care about the poor. Wiccans, Druids, and the Americans United for Separation of Church and State seemed to place the Towey story in first place!

:-)

Seems the Pagan Pride day groups collection, any other collections, of food and money for homeless shelters, interfaith food banks, the American Red Cross, a battered women's shelter, children with AIDS, and other charities has not made it into the Bush thought process Granted the number (by extrapolated survey) of Wiccans is less than 134,000, and with perhaps 33,000 Druids, and only 140,000 other pagans - perhaps a total of less than 300,000 people folks into the "family of religious and magical paths." which of course explains the lack of capital intensive things like food banks run by Pagans - but it is interesting the Bush finds the wrong beliefs mean those folks lack a charitable heart or a charitable focus or purpose.
